SMNR: International Business Litigation

This writing seminar examines resolution of disputes arising from transnational business transactions. Participants will be introduced to the development and operation of arbitration as a mechanism for resolving disputes and applicable U.S., international, and foreign laws, rules, and conventions relating to institution of arbitration, arbitration procedures, and enforcement of awards. Also considered are the obtaining of evidence and the enforcement of judgments abroad, as well as dispute resolution in contracts with foreign governments. In addition to procedural matters, we will discuss the extraterritorial applicability of U.S. regulatory laws (antitrust, securities, RICO, etc.) and their role in transnational litigation. Students who have already taken Professor Westbrook's International Business Litigation or another International Litigation course may not take this seminar.
